Swimming in soup

I am participating in the second incarnation of the now famous Bead Soup Party that was started by Lori Anderson at the beginning of the year. This time around I have been paired with Mel Poxon of Kookie Designs. Lucky me! Just look at all the of the gorgeous beads that she sent me!

Almost all of them are lampwork glass beads made by a variety of amazing artists, along with some colored pearls and silver components (including a PMC bead that Mel made herself!). My jaw dropped when I opened the box!

The only problem now is trying to decide what to make. I have so many ideas floating around my brain and they are all screaming "pick me! pick me!"

You lucky girl. Mel was my partner last time, and she also sent me a really nice package.
